    Subaru STi box build

    Built this for a friend last night. He really needs to invest in some sound deadening now.



    Trunk cleaned out and ready for the new cargo



    Getting pieces glued togetherůsuch exciting stuff



    How do you solve a problem with the potential of damage to a box or sub because a car has a tendency to get airborne and can corner like a go-kartůbrace the crap out of it.





    Adding that little extra touch





    Decided on a white port to better match the car.



    Carpeted and ready to be installed



    Fits like a glove

    I didn't think he was expecting to either but I told him DD subs are space hungry. You don' realize how much 2.5^3 is until you put it into prospective. However, he was very happy with the outcome

    should have gone with a different driver if he wasn't keen on giving up trunk space.

    Want an SPL meter for a lot less than the cost of a Termlab, but just as accurate and has more features and support? PM me.

    No need in going with a different driver, he was very happy with the sound and said the trunk space was a fair trade off.

    Re: Subaru STi box build

    The port dimensions were just one of a few challenges we faced but nothing that a little forethought couldn’t fix. My major concern was getting port noise from the drastic angle from the slope but we were able to work it out thanks to the help of a little router magic. LOL

    Thanks guys, we were very happy with the way it turned out considering it was our first shot at a wedged port.
